This group welcomes parents of special needs children ranging from mild learning disabilities to more significant special needs. This is a "no judgement" group that meets to mingle and meet other parents who are traveling the same special needs path.  Most Meetups will be "a meet & and greet" for coffee or cocktails and chatting with other parents in a restaurant setting.  Don't miss the interactive workshops with topics that will help parents navigate their special education path with confidence and knowledge.  Some workshop topics include IEP Review, Understanding Evaluations, Negotiation skills for Team Meetings, Effective Team Communication, Effective Progress versus Lack of Progress, Educational Lingo, with many more events to come as we evolve as a group.  Q & A is always a popular way to end the evening!  So join us to socialize, make connections and learn how to effectively advocate and educate your special needs child. Lets build ourselves a community because it takes a village to raise a child!
